Rugby World Cup 2019 -New Zealand V Ireland 19.10.2019

New Zealand are still the bookies tournament favourites to win the 2019 Rugby World Cup at odds of around 5/4 (2.25). The defending champions won the World Cup in both 2011 and 2015 and are most certainly the team to beat.

This interesting quarter-final match is scheduled to take place at the Ajinomoto Stadium (a.k.a. Tokyo Stadium) in Chōfu, Tokyo on Saturday night (local time).

The All Blacks remain unbeaten in Japan and are strong favourites (1.20) to beat Ireland this weekend and it will be a major upset should Ireland stop them. 

New Zealand V Ireland Prediction

In terms of a New Zealand V Ireland prediction, the Irish have fared well against the All Blacks in recent meetings and are always capable of raising their game for key games and could give the Kiwis a run for their money. They can be backed at 5.50 to win and the draw is available at odds of 34.0.

Ireland will be looking for a big reaction after their surprise 19-12 defeat to host nation Japan in their last game and if you are in possession of any New Zealand V Ireland free bets a punt on Ireland on the Handicap markets with a +15 point start could prove profitable.
